The story behind my lo...

did not come easy. I love the song by Elton John, but I never paid too much attention to the lyrics. It is quit a depressing song, and at this point in my life I can not really relate to these lyrics. So no lo about me, my daughter or anything personal this time.

A week before this dare was posted we went to the zoo in Rhenen, totally unexpected we there ran into "het berenbos" I had heard about it, but didn't know where it was. "Het Berenbos" is a project that was started to give abused and neglected bears from over the world a better life. It was so great to see them running around, rubbing their backs against trees and taking a bath in a little pond, knowing that their life's before were less from perfect (some have their teeth pulled out, their nails pulled out, never had more freedom then a meters chain they were on, and all that for entertainment of tourists in counties like Turkey and Romania for example). Thought the title "Don't let the sun go down on me" was perfect for a lo about these bears.

My recipe: BG Gypsy paper, BG letter sticker, HS chipboard and a lovely paper flower.

Grts, Mirjam
